I was starting to feel all alone on KR when I saw a name pop up. I would like to say good morning to Patshere.

I'm not Pat, but I would have to agree it's been feeling a little ghost townish...

I have noticed that too although I am usually on line when most of you people are either in bed or getting up and trotting off to work. Just means that this forum never sleeps.

Yes, loads of folks are off and running with summertime activities, and clearly spend less time here. Bummer! I always love it when KR is hopping.

I usually check in several times a day, I just don't post as much anymore. Seems I've harped enough already about life lines and different knitting issues!

Don't remember if I posted here about my left thumb tendon problem. I finally had surgery the 20th of June and it really has made a big difference. I still have some pain, but that is my fault! (Don't tell my doctor!) I am so happy to be able to knit and knit and knit now! No socks, they require a tight tension, but I'm working on a really nice scarf that can be knit with less tension.

I finally turned the a/c on this last Thursday. Boy am I glad I'm not in DC where my son lives! 6:41 here and it is still 96.5F outside, 73.5 inside.

Here I am!

I've also noticed a dearth of signed on friends lately. Everyone might be out enjoying the searing heat, but not I. I'll be inside until later this afternoon when I'll head over to the Wickford Art Festival.

The summer (well, summer in the Northern Hemisphere since Grand-moogi must be enjoying winter weather!) is always slow on the KR forums -- blame it on travel, barbecues, and the heat. At least if I get to travel, I can visit new yarn stores and see what is popular in other places. I saw many hats with twisted stitches and cables in the Pacific Northwest last week.

I noticed it was a little too quiet here as I was looking around. I hope it's just because it's summer.

More activity this week; it's been nice.

It's funny; this winter/spring I was having trouble keeping up with the posts. It's a luxury to read them all, and I don't always have time to do it. Guess that's the flip side of the summer slow-down.

Hi everyone! I've been having "work done" on my computer and Mr. Luann has it more often than I do. I've been surfing in and out on my iPad but I don't like composing posts on it so I haven't written anything. Hope everyone is having a good summer. Grand-moogi, I know you have not been having a good winter, hoping things get better for you soon.

I check in once a day, but it has been too hot here in Baltimore to move my fingers much.;-)

But tonight we have temperatures down to the 68's or so! Only for a couple of days, though.

Best wishes to everybody!

Hi Anna, That 68 would be fahrenheit? I googled a conversion and it would be 20 in Celsius. Still a bit warm for the night. I always like nights to be cooler. 20 is OK for the day time. What have you been having? Here our days are ranging between 10 and 16 Celsius. (50 to 60 Fahrenheit) and we are mid winter.

Grand moogi, we have been having plenty of blasting heat in the Mid Atlantic states in the US: High 90's to mid 100's...... it has been just ugh weather, as I don't like heat!
I sweat a good deal, have to drink water to keep blood pressure up, and my linen clothes ( I love linen for the heat) are always sopping wet at the end of the day.
Then we'll have a couple of days of cooler weather, and then, like tomorrow and Friday, it is up again to the 100 degrees fahrenheit.
Thankfully, I have an ancient air conditioner that still works in my bedroom!
Best wishes to everybody!

68F, 20C at 1:00 in the morning here in NW Pa. Just checked weather dot com and found out we are under a Sever Storm Threat tomorrow, with a forecast of a high of 89F. Scattered thunder storms supposed to start in about 3 hours, at 4:00 in the morning, with the sever winds arriving around 4:00 in the afternoon.

I wish they would make up their minds, one day the forecast says one thing, then 24 hours later it is just the opposite!

The headline read:

Severe Storm Threat in Northeast Thursday

A significant threat of damaging winds is on tap for the Northeast and Ohio Valley Thursday.
